News from GHGES
GHGES Solution Marine is proud to have partnered with Groupe Desgagnés to develop operating procedures and checklists for the group’s new LNG-powered ships.
During the past year, we have assisted several shipowners in their efforts to become energy efficient and to reduce their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. We have also been working on an electrification project that will enable one of our partners to further lower their carbon emissions. In 2016, we identified projects that, upon completion, will cut GHG emissions by more than 4,200 tons, or the equivalent of 1,298 tons of fuel.
Remote Tracking System
This year, we created a new product, the Marine Energy Tracker (MET) ®, that will enable shipowners to monitor their ships’ efficiency by means of a powerful and innovative web-based platform. The product is a natural extension of our current service offerings and is more than a simple tracking system.
After an energy audit, we develop a variety of algorithms to meet the specific needs of each ship. The core report addresses the differences between performance indicators elaborated during the audit and are subsequently calculated in GHG and in dollar cost terms in relation of the selected time period. The system is tailored to the needs of Canadian shipowners. It takes into account navigation on inland waters, the Great Lakes, locks, and the St. Laurence Seaway. The result is a more accurate analysis of the Canadian reality and your specific fleet.
Furthermore, there is no need for costly fuel meters that are costly to install because our system calculates consumption in an indirect and yet precise manner. It’s a true innovation!
This is one of the reason that this project was partly funded by the National Research Council of Canada (NRC).
You know that eventually you will need a fleet distance monitoring system, in order to increase your fleet efficiency. Now the time has come. The MET ® is abordable and based on a open architecture that will eventually allow you to control and analyse your date base. No extra cost no traps. We install and test-it for you. All the data are secured.

Before taking corrective actions or implementing new methods to improve a ship’s energy efficiency, an accurate assessment of its condition must first be conducted.
This information is essential for identifying the most cost-effective projects and constitutes the baseline mesurement for proving the results obtained.
